Iris Rojo Vermouth
Sweet Red Spanish Vermouth
In the mid-nineteenth century, August de Muller and Ruinart de Brimont, member of a distinguished family of Alsatian winemakers, founded the De Muller winery. Soon known for the quality of its artisan wines, the winery belonged to the De Muller family until 1995, when it was sold to the Martorell family. In 1999, the De Muller winery acquired the Cochs S.A. distillery and began producing "Vermut de Reus", which is a typical Spanish Vermouth with a tradition dating back more than one hundred years.
Today, the facilities of the De Muller winery are located in the 'Mas de Valls' estate, in Reus, southern Catalonia. Moreover, the winery also owns the 'Mas de les Pusses' estate in El Molar, a town belonging to the world-famous Priorat DOQ. As a result, the De Muller winery produces products in the Tarragona, Priorat, and Terra Alta DOs.
Vermouth Iris Rojo has a suggestive dark brown colour with amber highlights. The nose has a soft, fragrant and elegant aroma, which leads us to a world of a thousand sensations, all herbaceous and perfectly balanced, which include herbs such as rosemary, sage, anise, fennel and liquorice stick.
On the palate it is pleasant sweet, warm and balanced, with perfect harmony between alcohol and extracts. Elegantly herbaceous notes of thyme on a balsamic background, with a taste of hazelnuts and subtle hints of peppermint.
